    shutdown & wav problem (XP home)

    Two problems at the same time but don't know if they are related.

    1. Wave file of C3PO ("If you won't be needing me, I will be shutting down") plays intermittedly such as when clicking on another wave file, exiting a program, or for no reason whatsoever. I did not install this wave and searches for it on the hard drive and in the registry have been fruitless.

    2. Cannot shutdown - nothing happens.

    Spybot, SpySweeper, CWShredder, Norton Anti-virus, and Symantec Anti-virus have all failed to reveal the culprit. Can anyone suggest another path to go down?

    For the sound issue, check the Sounds and Multimedia applet in Control Panel and see what sounds are assigned to system events. Chances are it's located there somewhere.

    As far as shutdown, try manually closing everything you can before attempting it, and see if the problem persists. Shutdown problems are typically related to a service or program not responding to the request. You don't happen to have a Logitech keyboard, do you? This was a known issue with Logitech's earlier versions of their keyboard software.

    Thanx for the help, but I've already travelled down that road to no avail. Is there a solution short of using a .357 Magnum?

    Which problem have you attempted to solve? Perhaps you should post the shutdown problem separately from the WAV file playing randomly so we can keep track of them...
